Situated in the 1st Arrondissement on a quiet street just off the Rue Saint-Honore and a short walk to the Rue de Rivoli, which both play important roles in the history of Paris, and is close to numerous tourist attractions such as the Angelina Tearoom, the Musee de l'Orangerie home to Monet paintings, the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and the River Seine. Yet as the Timhotel Le Louvre name suggests, it is also within very easy walking distance of the most famous of all museums in Paris, if not the world.
But just as a point of interest, located on the facade of the hotel just as you are about to enter, if you look up to the first floor and to the left of the entrance you will see a plaque, which refers tragedians who are a type of playwright or actor that performed certain types of plays, and when translated into English, this reads:
This building keeps the memory of the stays in Paris (1880 - 1892) of the great Romanian tragedians
Aristizza Romanesou (1854-1918)
Grioore Manolesou (1857-1892)
